Larkins Vacura Kayser Prevails in $750,000 Real Estate DisputeMay 15, 2019
Larkins Vacura Kayser Attorneys Bridget Donegan and Hopi Ruplin recently won a defense verdict for a home seller who was sued for fraud after his real estate agent whited out his disclosure forms that were given to the buyers. After hearing a week of testimony, the jury found that there had been no fraud. On a separate claim for consumer law violations, the buyers asked for $250,000 plus $500,000 in punitive damages. The jury awarded the buyers $3,000, and rejected their punitive damages claim in less than 15 minutes.
